Publisher Description

The joys and the harsh realities of farm life, from a writer whose family has farmed the same piece of land for five generations.

'An unsentimental yet lyrical love letter to the land, and the humans and animals who inhabit it, this extraordinary memoir follows life on a family farm through the seasons. This is a man-on-his-land story unlike anything you will have read before. Tough and tender, heartfelt, fabulous.' Linda Burgess.

Farmer Tim Saunders manages to incorporate some writing into his days, and here he describes his life through the seasons: Summer, shearing, slaughter, crop harvest, conservation; Autumn, floods, trading stock, drenching, dagging; Winter, maize harvest, lambing; and Spring, docking, pet sheep, weaning.

It's a tough life and through his powerful, poignant writing Tim tells of his connection to the land, why he loves farming, how he's also conflicted by it and what it is that keeps him tethered to that place.
